It is a well-kept secret that many, if not most, assisted living facilities have adopted a menu-driven fee schedule. They start with a base fee that covers room and board, and may include a rudimentary supervision protocol. Many include some type of entertainment as a bonus. Anything above that could be, and usually is, extra. Extra fees for assistance with dressing and bathing. Extra fees for escorting you to the dining room or being served in your room. Extra fees for wellness checks that exceed the monitoring process. Extra for laundry and maid service. Extra fees for anything that does not conform to their streamlined method of providing care. And each additional service that is rendered is carefully tabulated and presented for payment at the end of each month.
While this method is perfectly reasonable and acceptable, it does, more often than not, result in some unexpected surprises at the end of the month. And while it might be a little disturbing, no one wants to preclude, or even merely suggest the notion, that no assistance be rendered when needed. And somehow, assistance is always needed on some level.
In contrast, we offer our services based on an all-inclusive fee. Everything that a person might need while under our care is included.
Our homes are specifically designed for the purpose of rendering assisted living care and stress safety and comfort above anything else. We feature items like emergency lighting systems, central fire/smoke alarm systems and state-of-the-art emergency call/notification systems. We are staffed 24/7 and are prepared to deal with any situation that might arise.
We are fully licensed, bonded and insured, meaning that we have met the scrutiny of the State of Illinois, have satisfied all requirements of loss prevention by the experts of the insurance companies, and have evidenced our solid fiscal capabilities and responsibilities.
If a long term stay is not needed, our homes offer temporary options to address your situation and needs.
We will devote the same amount of attention and care no matter how long of a stay.
